The Australia-Germany Joint Research Co-operation Scheme is a joint initiative of Universities Australia and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), Germany's national agency for the support of international academic co-operation.
It aims to foster research collaboration of the highest quality between Australian researchers from Universities Australia member universities and German researchers from German universities and research institutes.
The scheme will support exchanges for Australian researchers to spend time at partner institutions in Germany and for collaborating German researchers to spend time at Australian universities.
The support of early career researchers and junior scholars is a significant focus of this scheme.
Projects are funded for one or two years commencing in 2016. Maximum funding per year, per project is AUD $12,500.
Applications will be ranked by an internal review panel. Projects recommended for further consideration will be forwarded to Universities Australia for DAAD consideration.
